“At the Portland Japanese Garden we continue to engage Chef Naoko’s services because we have found the food is always fresh and delicious, the presentation simple, elegant, and perfectly appropriate to each event, and the service exceptional. It is a pleasure to work with Chef Naoko and her team and we would happily, and strongly, recommend them.”

The Portland Japanese Garden

Chef Naoko Catering is a full service caterer with many years experience in Portland catering to weddings, private parties, corporate functions, and non-profit events, both large and small.  Many of our catering customers return to us again and again for their catering needs because they know that they can trust Chef Naoko to help make their event a memorable success.  At Chef Naoko we want our catering to be uniquely suited to your special occasion and we invite you to discuss your needs directly with Naoko, and allow her to propose a menu and catering service which will help you exceed your goals for your special event.


Buffet style catering is our most frequently requested, and some sample menus are shown below.  Many customers request bento style lunches and dinners served in our elegant  red and black lacquer trays, which gives a uniquely Japanese touch to the event.  Chef Naoko can also provide full plated dinner service, passed appetizers, beverage service, and everything needed to suit any event including rentals, flowers, and decorations.  The menus below are provided as samples, based upon previous catering orders, and intended as “food for thought” and to provide some ideas which may be relevant to your own needs.  Chef Naoko would be delighted to suggest a menu to suit your requirements and budget, and to help make your event special.  We can also cater to special dietary requirements or provide options for vegan and gluten free.
